“Metallurgy in the 20th century bases itself on the latest advances in physics, chemistry, and physical chemistry. In turn, there are many spin-offs from metal-making: progress in these and. indeed, any other sciences would have been impossible without the various materials possessing a broad gamut of truly amazing properties, and these materials come from metallurgy, one of the most ancient, the most advanced.and the most promising of man's arts.
